(12/3/2017)

In the midst of overblown and simplistic reports in the international media of impending disaster in connection with the possible eruption of Mount Agung, the general public is yet to understand that even in the worst case scenario of a major volcanic eruption only some 2% of Bali’s total land mass – an area limited to a specified radius of 8-10 kilometers surrounding Mount Agung – would be directly affected by a major eruption.

In fact, people staying in the main tourist areas in South Bali, located some 70 kilometers from Mount Agung, remain oblivious to the current eruption with their information limited to news reports on television and the Internet.

Kompas.com recently highlighted five among many tourist activities that can still be enjoyed in Bali in areas far removed from Mount Agung.

1. Rafting on the Ayung River


Passing through Bali’s highlands and past the village of Ubud, the Ayung River is one of Bali’s favorite whitewater rafting locations. Suitable for beginners on their first rafting trip, the currents and rapids while exciting are not overwhelming. And, best of all, enjoy scenic Bali while passing through picturesque villages along the way.

2. Cycling and Trekking in Ubud


On the outskirts of the Village of Ubud a cycling or trekking journey will pass through ancient terraced rice fields. Some of these trekking trips start virtually in the Center of Ubud, commencing from Bukit Campuhan for the Campuhan Ridge Walk. Many tour operators in the area feature guided bike tours. Smart bike tour participants join tours that commence in Kintamani overlooking the Batur Volcano, allowing an easy ride downhill to Ubud.

3. Shopping Excursion to the Kuta Art Market and Seminyak


Souvenirs and gift items galore await dedicated shoppers visiting Bali. Clothing, exotic textiles, carvings and a whole range of other handicrafts are sold in sophisticated retail outlets or simple roadside stalls.

The Kuta Art Market is open daily from 8:00 am until approximately 7:00 pm, located on the beach at Kuta and access via Jalan Kartika Plaza.

4. Snorkeling at Menjangan Island


Located just offshore in northwest Bali, Menjangan Island is a protected part of West Bali National Park with the surrounding waters renowned for its outstanding snorkeling. Access to Menjangan is via the small port of Labuan Lalang – a three-hour drive through scenic countryside from Denpasar or less than an hour's drive from the port of Gilimanuk that is easily accessed via the East Java airport at Benyuwangi. Once you arrive at Labuan Lalang, the trip to idyllic Menjangan Island is only a 15-30 minute boat ride away.

5. Handicraft Tour


Bali’s large handicraft industry operates largely as a home industry. Visitors can visit village locations and witness first hand the intricate and attractive handicraft items being fashioned for sale to visitors. The Village of Batuan is famous for its stone carvings. A short distance away, the Village of Celuk has many workshops making silver jewelry. Meanwhile, on the road to Ubud, the Village of Mas is a center for making attractive Balinese masks. Handicrafts are made in many communities on the road from Sanur to Ubud - explore and be amazed by the unequalled skill of Balinese craftspeople.
